UWF600 Optical Layout

The UWF600 uses a prime focus configuration. The main mirror is a high order asphere and in the prime focus we use a 5 Lens corrector to correct any field aberrations in a wavelength range from 400nm to 700nm.

With the medium focal length it offers a very wide field in combination with a high resolution, especially in combination with modern small pixel CMOS sensors. It can also be arranged in arrays on our DDM mounts and can be a cost effective solution compared to fewer, larger telescopes.
